a treaty of friendship and cooperation. by 1974, as egypt began to move into the u.s. orbit, syria emerged as the no. 1 ally. not to say there are no problems between the two sides. the syrian intervention in lebanon clearly displeased moscow as did its agreement to security council to hundred 42. it's one of the few states that supported the soviet invasion of afghanistan in 1979 and was richly rewarded with military aid as a result. that continued until the advent of gorbachev in 1985 to turn off the tap of military aid. the chill in the relationship continued until 2005 when a combination of increasing syrian isolation due to policies in lebanon and a much more aggressive russian foreign policy under vladimir putin established a close russian- syrian relationship we see today. let's look at the policies of vladimir putin in his second term. i see is reacting to be setbacks like the school fiasco, the orange revolution in the ukraine, and the increasing vulnerability of the u.s. in the middle east because of the invasion of iraq which -- and because of the revival in the taliban in afgha

of serious analysis of the u.s. vital interests. i have not done that, although i have done some writing on that, but that is what is necessary. the point of the paper is that the public discussion is really not focused on that much more relevant question. what is really focused on is an irrelevant question, which is what are the short-term gdp effects of changes in the defense budget, and by implication, other changes in the budget as well, which is the wrong question. the question is, where are the resources used most productively in the coming, and what is the path that to take us there? percent of gdp is not really there, except in terms of -- -- as a measure of what we can afford. >> you talk about reduction of spending in the 1990's, but the domestic budget shrunk as well in the 1990's. bill clinton was in office, federal spending was 22% of gdp. eight years later, we were a little over 18%. that is a big cut in the cost of government. that was the biggest boom period we ever saw in this country. the economy never did better. i do not see evidence that these cutbacks in spending --

much of the u.s. cable coverage that i was seeing about the drug war, especially in this part of the country, to me seemed woefully decontextualized. it felt like rubbernecking body count journalism. x number of people were shot on the state. this person was be headed there, but no context. no background, no history, the deepening of the story. i'm by no means a expert on mexico's drug war, but i did have a very strong interest in this region and in tijuana. i began researching in 2007 while looking for another story. unlike other journalists, who do not have the amount of time that you often need to tell the stories, when i was in production i had a little over two years to spend with the story. that is enough time to deepen your sense of a place, an institution, to gain trust and to hopefully have a deeper narrative. whether or not i succeeded or failed is up to the audience and the people who push back on my perspective, but for me the ability to spend time with an issue, too deep and your understanding of that issue, provide the debt to audiences, that is key to take apart

questions. one of the questions that i've kstly been asked is how the u.s. military is going to be able to project power and to maintain presence in a global world, in an era of declining resources. we believe that the new defense strategy that we put in place, plus the budget that we have sent up to the congress is designed to allow us to accomplish that goal. but one important way that we are going to do this is to strengthen our network of defense alliances around the globe. indeed, i think it's fair to say that a vital pillar of the new defense strategy that we released this year is the important work of developing and deepening ties to other nations, developing their capabilities and building new alliances and partnerships to promote security. this is one of the keys to the defense force that we're trying to build for the 21st century. this system of defense alliances and security partnerships is one of america's greatest national security assets. no other nation in the world really has this asset. these relationships are sound investments in an era of fiscal challenges and they do

game playing out, where either of them have the trigger for u.s. involvement, i do not expect them to commit tonight, i do not think they have the answer. host: michael, independent line. caller: president barack obama has failed, first in his recent reset with russia, an ally with china, who is in cahoots with iran. terrorists want to destroy america because we are strong. my other point is -- foreign policy on the illegal immigrants coming into america. american people who have their own issues in america, and also the poor. i hope that mitt romney has good answers for these issues, because barack has failed. supporting the killing in libya -- what is his name? muammar gaddafi. and then not supporting the diplomats in the country. guest: russia is a good issue to talk about, because it highlights one of those well- kept secrets on foreign policy and the presidency. once someone takes the big chair behind the desk in the white house, they find they have a very few options on the tough problems facing u.s. foreign policy, which is why there has not been that much variation between

, the chairman of the u.s. securities and exchange commission. one of the things that i think makes this law school, the george washington law school distinctive, and different from other top law schools, is the degree to which we are integrated into the real world of law and policy practice in this country. one of the things we are always striving to do is not be an ivory tower, academic institution solely, but also one that is always trying to engage the practicing bar, people from corporations, people who are not lawyers, in the educational enterprise, and also in public policy discussions. obviously, we have a great and vantage being in washington, d.c. and having so much access to the world of policy. in addition, it is not just the location. it has to be your orientation at the law school. it is something i have emphasized since i arrived, but at long predates me. this school wants to always be the place to convene public policy discussions, create a forum for actionable information, to create an opportunity for non-partisan and bipartisan discussion. as i like to say, in d.c., but out
